  • "My husband's name is Gerard. Hes very handsome and strong. But he's also very sweet and sensitive. He loves music and movies and gaming. He can be a bit selfish at times, but I think that has more to do with being an only child. We've been married for almost 10 yrs. He was born in 1978" Jul. 15, 2017: Report as inappropriate
